The Holy Islamic Caliphate of Sahriastan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rajul min Alsihr with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.996 billion Prisoners are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mecca and Sahriastan City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sahriastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,109 trillion Riyals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 277,749 Riyals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, foreign musicians that Rajul min Alsihr dislikes are turned away at the border, there's no such thing as a safe bet, and the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahriastan's national animal is the Camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wahhabism.

Sahriastan is ranked 172,242nd in the world and 6,452nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.05 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
